3 Tips to Becoming a Leader – Not Just Another Manager

These days, a management position is something people work towards, but what makes a person qualified to be a manager? Often, a combination of education and experience prepares one to compete for management positions in their field.

In terms of education, programs that teach management skills can be a great jumping off point for managers in training. For example, at Anthem Education, management programs include Business Management, Healthcare Management, Health Information Management and a Master of Business Administration program.

If this is the direction you imagine your career path taking, have you ever considered becoming more than a manager? What I mean by that is have you ever considered becoming a leader?

You might think that being a manager and being a leader is the same thing, but that’s not necessarily true. According to an article for CareerBuilder.com, there are a few things that leaders do that set them apart as leaders and not just another manager. Check out these three tips to becoming a leader:

Inspire your employees to perform well.

Managers are in charge of making sure things get done, right? Well, one way you can tell if someone is a leader and not just a manager is to consider how they get the job done. Do you think a leader berates or encourages the team? Do you think a leader inspires the team to work better or intimidates the team to work harder? So how are you planning on getting the job done?

Share and communicate your vision.

What’s the difference between a plan and a vision? A plan is an organized way of getting things done, but it’s hard to be inspired by a plan. If you want people to give their job their all, then it is important for them to see the bigger picture of what they are working for – the vision. Leaders can communicate their vision and show how each task plays a role in the overall picture.

Develop your management skills.

Whoa, wait a minute! Aren’t we supposed to be talking about leaders here?

Well, that’s just it. Leaders are also excellent managers. A true leader is on top of the management game, but also has the vision needed to advance the organization in the right direction.

Still confused about the difference between a leader and a manager? BusinessDictionary.com puts it this way:

Leadership in an organizational role involves (1) establishing a clear vision, (2) sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly, (3) providing the information, knowledge, and methods to realize that vision, and (4) coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members or stakeholders… Unlike management, leadership flows from the core of a personality and cannot be taught, although it may be learned and may be enhanced through coaching or mentoring.

As you work toward a management position, keep in mind the differences between a manager and a leader, and decide for yourself which one you want to be.

If you are interested in pursuing management opportunities, but don’t have the education and skills that can help you get there, consider learning more about Anthem Education.  Anthem offers multiple management-related programs, including Business Management and Healthcare Management, through its online division – Anthem College Online.

A few of the company’s local campuses also offer management-related programs, including a Management degree program and Master of Business Administration at the Morrison University campus in Reno, Nevada.

Studying Management at an Anthem School? 4 Essential Leadership Skills

Are you looking to lead the healthcare or business world by studying management at an Anthem school?

Whether you are studying for your MBA at Morrison UniversityBusiness Management at Anthem Career College, or Healthcare Management at Anthem College Online, building leadership skills is an important part of your training to become an effective leader or manager.

CareerBuilder names four timeless leadership skills that all current and prospective managers should develop.

Relationship Building: Managers need to develop good relationships with their employees. Ghandi once said, “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.” If your employees like and trust you, they are more likely to follow you.

Goal Setting: People work better if they are working towards something. Theodore M. Hesburgh, President Emeritus of the University of Notre Dame, once said, “The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision.” Without a clear goal in mind, employees cannot perform to the best of their abilities.

Authenticity and follow-through: A leader must be consistent. Ray Kroc, the man who built McDonalds into the most successful fast food operation in the world, said, “The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.” Leaders need to exhibit qualities like authenticity and follow-through if they want to gain their employees’ trust.

Delegation: A leader often decides the destination and appoints others to decide how to get there. General George S. Patton described delegation in this way, “Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.” Real leaders give their employees a chance to shine.

Courses such as Principles of Management, Managerial Communication, Leadership, and Conflict Resolution are examples of some of the courses we teach our students in healthcare management, business management, and in the Morrison MBA program. These courses help lay a groundwork for understanding leadership skills and putting them in practice. They are further supplemented with core courses such as Introduction to Psychology, Decision Making in Healthcare Business, Human Resource Management, and Business Ethics.
